Jim Henson Portrait Painted

I revisited my digital Jim Henson caricature, and recreated it traditionally. This was done using cut paper, acrylic paints, and pop dots.

Thank you!

The traditional style in this one was a bit of an experiment, so I'm glad you dig it. This is the first time I have tried this with acrylics.

Killer art, the traditional route definitely worked, the look on his face is amazing.

Thanks very much! I mentioned to someone else that I felt like a bit of a hack redoing an older design, but I was really curious how this one would work traditionally. I'm glad I did it.

Thank you sir!

I felt a little like a hack recycling an older design, but I really wanted to do this one traditionally.

Oh how I wish he was still with us

the world is a poorer place without Jim Henson

he was a shining beacon of light in a dark and cynical world
WonderDookie's avatar
Me too. He still had so much to offer. When he died he had a huge amount of stuff in the works.

personally I can't wait till they finally make that Dark Crystal sequel that's been in the works for like 30 years

talk about development hell
WonderDookie's avatar
Oh man. I gave up on that one years ago. I don't think it will ever happen.

hey, there's always hope

that was Jim's message, after all
